Vowel Dominance in Overregularizations.
Stemberger, Joseph Paul
Journal of Child Language, v20 n3 p503-21 Oct 1993
When children produce regularizations like "comed," not all verbs are equally liked to be regularized. It is argued that one predictor is which vowels are present in the base form vs. the past tense form, and that regularizations are likely when the base vowel is dominant and unlikely when the past tense vowel is dominant.
